The Center for Learning Abroad Extends Study Abroad deadline

Due to Hurricane Irma, the Center for Learning Abroad has extended the application deadlines for J-term and Spring study abroad programs to Monday, Oct. 2.

The Center for Learning Abroad is offering eight $5,000 grants to several locations and will be awarding these scholarships to selected students that apply.

Some of the destinations for study abroad for these upcoming terms include Costa Rica, Italy, Australia, France, Spain and many more.

There is a common misconception that the study abroad experience is far more expensive than that of staying on campus here in Florida. However, the cost of going abroad is an equivalent match to the cost of living on the Lynn campus.

Victor Batista, graduate assistant in the Center for Learning Abroad said, “The study abroad programs are an under-appreciated department. Students do not take full advantage of the amazing program, unsure of how much it will cost.”

However, students that studied abroad in the past urge others to apply for these scholarships and programs, saying that the experiences are one of a kind.

“My study abroad experience was awakening,” said Charmahan Webbe, alumni and recipient of a $10,000 grant in the Fall of 2016. “It was exactly the experience I needed in order to gain the knowledge essential to becoming not only a great leader, but a better person.”

Why not take a chance, head over to the Center for Learning Abroad and find out more about how you can travel the world while earning your degree?
